There’s that moment when you know that you're in serious trouble.
Large, powerful waves crashing over my exhausted body, forcing me under the water.
Fighting, struggling to surface. I gasp for a breath as my head emerges above the ocean. I glance at the shore, it looks miles away. With the waves still crashing over me, I slowly pull against the current, towards the shore. As the last of my energy ebbs away, I finally heave myself onto the damp, ruff sand.
My lungs aching for lack of air, my heart pounding with exhaustion.
There’s that moment when you know you just escaped serious trouble.
